Model Animal Protection Laws Collection
The Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Model Animal Protection Laws include definitions of terms, general prohibitions, defenses, pre- and post-conviction procedures, and other provisions.
Whether you are updating the municipal code for a city, running a campaign against a cruel industry practice, or litigating a case against an animal abuser, the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Model Animal Protection Laws Collection are a great reference.
This collection of model laws can serve as a benchmark to measure your local animal protection laws against, or a template to create new ones.
The Model Animal Protection Laws are in the process of being updated.
